What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a medical discipline that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and the effects these disorders have on the general health of patients. Chiropractic care is primarily – but not solely – used to treat complaints related to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractic treatments often include spinal manipulation or adjustments and other joint and soft tissue manipulation techniques and can also include exercise, nutrition and health, and lifestyle counseling.
